Is this how Police behave in Portugal? Man attacked in front of his children.

Labour Party Leadership Campaign - Chuka Umunna gives up nomination

Chuka Umunna
Even in the Labour Party in which some members very often organize and carry out campaigns of political harassment against political adversaries there is a climate of fear when it comes to be put under public scrutiny.

Chuka Umunna, the recently re-elected Streatham Member of Parliament, has now pulled out of the race to elect a new Labour Party Leader expressing concerns about unwanted interference in his private life.

As a public figure you are bound to be under public scrutiny and I am one of those who knows perfectly well the stresses of being a member of a political party and of standing to represent the said political party in elections.

In politics you must be willing to sacrifice your family life and this includes your right to privacy because the mass media and some political opponents will seek to destroy your image in every that they can.
Having said that, there are questions to be raised. Chuka Umunna, a rising star in the Labour Party and a very good speaker, politically experienced, had no qualms about standing as Candidate to be re-elected as Member of Parliament. Chuka Umunna was already in the public domain and therefore he was already subjected to the stresses of political life. What is new? Why did he give up his challenge to become Leader of the Labour Party?

Before anybody starts speculating, I would like Chuka Umunna to provide a full explanation of the additional reasons that led him to give up the top post in the Labour Party.

George Galloway: Another straw to the pile

The fall of Lutfur Rahman, now former Mayor of Tower Hamlets, accused of illegal practices including violations of Electoral Law, vote rigging, intimidation and defamation of political opponents, was certainly a blow for George Galloway, one of Luftur Rahman's main supporters and now former Respect Party MP.

The loss of his seat in the House of Commons as Member of Parliament representing Bradford was not directly affected by events in Tower Hamlets but by public expressions that alienated many of his supporters in the Respect Party and led many Muslim voters to walk away from him. His views on sexuality and particularly concerning the rapport between men and women seem to have cost him his seat. George Galloway re-entered the House of Commons with Muslim support but this time the Asian Community, including Muslims, chose to support the Labour Party.

As always, nothing is clear cut. Every coin has two sides. There are several George Galloways. There is also the George Galloway that is dead against interventionism in the Arab World and in the Muslim World and the George Galloway that opposes warmongers in Europe, warmongers that seek confrontation with the Russian Federation.

George Galloway is a controversial and confrontational individual but it must be said that being passionate about what he does is what defines the man.

I look forward to May 7th 2015. No more speculation

All we have got now is tons of speculation, opinion polls and innuendo.

I look forward to May 7th 2015 to at least get rid of all the bla, bla, bla about who is going to win.

If what is being forecast really happens, there will be interesting times ahead if SNP manages to win every single seat in Scotland and becomes partner in a coalition in the House of Commons. The impact in every area of interest will be of gigantic proportions and this includes Defence, Foreign Policy, Welfare State, Transport, et cetera, et cetera.

The relationship between UK and US in terms of Foreign Policy, of NATO and of Europe a whole including Russia will be dramatically altered. This is something that could lead to other major developments also in England where there will be ever stronger voices in favour of an English Parliament.

Dealing with ordinary people on a regular basis and listening to what they say and the subjects they talk about I reckon very few people have even the faintest idea of political Tsunami heading their way. In a climate of political stagnation this could be the trigger for fundamental changes of the Electoral System.

The Scottish National Party has become more Labour than Labour and their position regarding Trident reminds us of what used to be the official stance of the Old Labour Party regarding nuclear weapons. As always you need to ponder about the Law of Unintended Consequences.

All major political parties campaigned against Scottish Independence and celebrated a very narrow victory. Now, that victory might turn out to be a gigantic defeat. The Conservatives were wiped out in 1997 and 2015 would be Labour and Lib Dem's year of reckoning.

BNP said Lutfur Rahman was corrupt and the Courts proved BNP was right

Luftur Rahman (centre with Rosette)
The Mayor of Tower Hamlets - Luftur Rahman - has been sacked for corrupt practices and illegal practices including ballot rigging, buying votes and lying about his opponents.

The now former Mayor of Tower Hamlets was involved in 'postal voting factories' used to 'produce ballots' to allow him to win elections.

Rahman's supporters registered and cast hundreds of fake postal votes and hundreds of ballot papers could have been completed by the same person.

So, let's say it: the British National Party was right all over again when it raised the issue of electoral fraud in Tower Hamlets.

Luftur Rahm also stands accused of involved with an Islamic Extremist organization.

The Judge acting in this case stated that Luftur Rahma ran a ruthless and dishonest campaign and was guilty of bribery, treating and undue influence, make false statements against another candidate and undue spiritual influence using religion to influence votes.

Luftur Rahman was not only removed as Mayor of Tower Hamlets. Luftur Rahman was banned from standing again as a candidate.

May 7th 2015 - More questions than answers

2015 UK General Election
Unlike any other General Election this is going to be a General Election that is going to influenced by both internal and external factors of the greatest importance as events happening outside the United Kingdom are having an impact in the political discourse.

Just a few days from Polling Day, events developing in the Mediterranean Region are bringing to the fore the issue of immigration, refugees and asylum combined with aspects of Foreign Policy in terms of the role played by the United Kingdom in the process of destabilization of Africa, the Middle East and Asia Minor. The Domino Effect triggered by Western Intervention in Libya and the fall of the regime of President Gaddafi spread like wildfire across several countries including Tunisia, Syria, Yemen, Iraq and others and become practically unstoppable. The direct consequence of the process of destabilization has been a constant flow of refugees that are now heading for the European Union and many of them are dying at sea as the tragedy unfolds.

Because of naivety and/or carelessness or because of both, Western Countries including the United Kingdom and US as the main driver of interventionism, a Pandora's Box has been opened. Political leaders believed that merely by deposing regimes they could magically kick start political changes towards Democracy. Instead, they created political voids and exacerbated already existing tensions.

I do have the feeling that was started by war could only be ended by war on a massive scale to try and restore some kind of equilibrium to generate solutions and give millions of desperate people a way out, a set of viable alternatives to remain in their own countries instead of throwing themselves into the sea in search of a better life.

I foresee that Europe will pay a very high price to deal with the nightmare created by very short-sighted Foreign Policies and that at one point or another European Armies will have to be committed to battlefields in Africa, Middle East and Asia Minor. This could very well be World War Three because the flow of asylum seekers and refugees will not be stopped by merely sending people back to their countries of origin.

Adam Walker - BNP Chairman - Parliamentary Candidate in Rotherham

Adam Walker
British National Party Chairman Adam Walker will stand on May 7th 2015 General Election as Parliamentary Candidate in Rotherham.

We very well know how difficult it can be to get a seat in the Houses of Commons but this is no ordinary seat and this is no ordinary battle.

It is a battle that the British National Party has been fighting for a very long time to protect British children and stop the abuses being committed by gangs against vulnerable boys and girls that the British State should have protected.

Instead the British State under both Labour and Conservative Administrations choose to look the other way and organizations like the BBC - itself blemished by scandals involved in massive scale pedophilia and other sexual crimes of all kinds - ignored.

When British National Party representatives publicly denounced the crimes being committed by Asian gangs predominantly of Pakistani descent, British National Party representatives were accused of racism by none other than Jimmy Savile's BBC.

Denis MacShane
Denis MacShane MP, Labour Representative during much of the period when the worst offenses were committed, did nothing to protect children being abused. The local authority and even local Police knew about the crimes being committed and did absolutely nothing to stop abuses. They just looked the other way.

Denis MacShane MP was forced to resign his seat in Parliament when the British National Party made him accountable for expenses fraud, something that Denis MacShane publicly acknowledged saying that he had been ousted by the British National party.

As the scandal became vox populi nationally, more abuses were uncovered and a series of high profile resignations followed but those who chose to ignore the fact that children were being abused and many of the abusers themselves have not been made accountable.

Against all odds and constant brainwashing carried out by the mass media, the British National Party stands for ordinary people and most importantly for those most vulnerable in society. This is why the British National Party Chairman Adam Walker, in very adverse political circumstances, is doing his duty and says "We are here; we are not going away; we have been here and we will continue to be here to defend what is right and proper; we are not looking the other way. This is why we are different from many other political parties. We face our public responsibilities head on and we will deliver."

In any election, you win and you lose but, most importantly, whatever the outcome of any election, we stand for principle.
